After launching trade-in offers for iPhone XR and iPhone XS in the United States, Apple has debuted a similar offer here in Canada.
Smack dab in prime ‘above-the-fold’ real estate on Apple.ca, the company says a new “limited time” offer means you can get “iPhone XR from $649. iPhone XS from $999.”
Of course, there’s always a catch when it comes to these lusty-worthy advertised trade-in prices.
According to the fine print, the prices shown are after a customer trades in an iPhone 7 Plus, suggesting this is the market Apple is targeting for an upgrade:
iPhone XR and XS pricing is after trade-in of iPhone 7 Plus. Additional trade-in values available for a limited time only and require purchase of a new iPhone, subject to availability and limits. Trade-in values vary based on the condition, year and configuration of your trade-in device. This offer is for in-store trade-in only, and is not available online. You must be at least 18 years old. In-store trade-in requires presentation of a valid, government-issued photo ID (local law may require saving this information). Additional terms from Apple or Apple’s trade-in partners may apply.
An iPhone XR starts at $1029 CAD, while an iPhone XS starts at $1379 CAD. The advertised promo prices suggest an iPhone 7 Plus trade-in value of $380 (most likely for a device in excellent condition).
With Boxing Day around the corner, you can expect more deals coming for iPhone XR and more from Apple’s authorized retailers and wireless partners.
